The nation’s fanciest dog houses are coming to the most dog-friendly city in the U.S.
DogSpot, the maker of shared dog houses that you can rent by the minute, is launching in Seattle as part of a national expansion. The startup has partnered with grocery chain QFC for an initial roll-out of eight houses that are set to launch by early June.
Just how fancy are the houses? They come with air conditioning and ultraviolet lights to disinfect the interior between uses. Pet parents can even check in on their pups during their stay through a “puppy cam” on the DogSpot app.
Dog owners can book a house up to 15 minutes in advance or on arrival. The company’s cloud-based platform operates on Microsoft Azure.
“[DogSpot] is good for local business, and it’s good for dog owners to have one of their problems solved. And it’s great for dogs because they get more walks and more quality time with the people they love,” said Rebecca Eyre, director of communications at DogSpot.
A top national news site has ranked Washington as the best state in America.
The ranking, announced Tuesday by U.S. News & World Report, says the home of Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks and Boeing earned the No. 1 ranking based on several criteria, including health care, education, economy and opportunity.
“This confirms what we in Washington have always known – that our state is great for businesses, workers, and investments, coupled with natural beauty and innovative, creative people,” Gov. Jay Inslee said in a statement.
Meanwhile, a health lifestyle site has ranked Seattle as America’s second-fittest city. That ranking, by the American College of Sports Medicine and the Anthem Foundation, is based on the Emerald City’s high marks on 33 different measures of personal health habits and how well that works to encourage fitness in the overall community.
The two high rankings together echo much of what local residents already know – that Washington is a good place to live and work.
We helped a longtime investor client and his father purchase this total fixer on Finn Hill. There were FOURTEEN offers on this home and we won the deal with a carefully crafted offer designed to appeal to the seller on many levels. Very excited to see this talented duo transform the property and give it new life.
We helped our clients buy this magical updated home in their target neighborhood of Magnolia. The entire second floor was beautifully remodeled by an esteemed Seattle contractor while original charm still abounds throughout. The unfinished basement adds loads of expansion potential. And the sweet fenced yard offers a ton more play space... not to mention room for a new dog! Congrats to this darling family who we've had the pleasure of working with on multiple occasions.
Check out the recent installation of American artist and filmmaker Doug Aitken - a house of mirrors constructed in Gstaad, Switzerland. From Minimalissimo: "With every surface covered entirely in mirrors, the centrepiece of Switzerland’s annual Elevation 1049 arts festival stands out, or more accurately, blends in. Drawing off the festival’s 2019 theme of Frequencies, Doug Aitken’s installation uses light to absorb and reflect the snowy, mountainous landscape of the Swiss Alps."
